GOOD DAYDeportivoIt’s been a troubling start to 2009 for La Liga Loca. The blog returned from foreign parts to find an odd smell of an unknown source in the kitchen and the deeply troubling concept that it might have to take Deportivo seriously now. Heck, it may even have to watch one of their games. An away win against Getafe on Sunday night sees Lotina’s lot move away from their seventh place comfort zone and into the badlands of the UEFA Cup places. And that’s a fairly remarkable performance for a club that boasts Riki and Bodipo as strikers. With 30 points on the board and “the return of SuperDepor” according to Marca, the blog has its fingers crossed for three more victories and then a slow and steady decline as the players focus on the more important task of buying sports cars. Thierry HenryFrom being a player that the Catalan press were prone to cocking the biggest of snooks at, the sulky striker is now back in the Barcelona good books with his ninth league goal of the season against Mallorca. “You don’t win the league against Villarreal, Sevilla, Valencia or Madrid, but also against Getafe, Racing, Numancia and Mallorca,” confirmed Henry, forgetting that Barcelona lost against Numancia and drew against Getafe and Racing.  Titi’s tally is now just three behind last year’s La Liga total and that stat has got the likes of Sport very sweaty indeed. But not as gurgly and gushing as their report over Maradona’s visit to Saturday’s game and the training centre.

“Jeff Stelling will be going mad,” my father-in-law Den said, after Michael Nelson majestically headed Hartlepool United into a 1-0 lead in the FA Cup Third Round against Stoke City.Stelling’s response was uppermost in the minds of jubilant Pools fans as they streamed out of the Victoria Ground on a bitter, bright January afternoon. “He’ll be doing his nut,” said one, while another rang his missus: “We won 2-0. Put the telly on and see what Jeff Stelling’s doing.”Stelling was, indeed, doing his nut in the studio, insisting Pools’ 2-0 dismissal of Stoke was the “shock of the day.”

So another year comes tumbling to a end quicker than you can say "Filippo Inzaghi's offside" and Serie Aaaaargh! would like to bring 2008 to a close with its very own take on the Serie A table.

"Billy was a little fella, but so strong in the tackle. Determined, no-nonsense, and most of all, a winner..."
